Yahoo (YHOO) has hired Google (GOOG) exec Michael Barrett to be its Chief Revenue Officer. Barrett, who until last year was CEO of Google-acquired startup AdMeld, will be tasked with shoring up with a Yahoo ad division that has been plagued by sales execution and technology issues. His hiring, which comes amidst reports Yahoo is thinking of outsourcing some of its ad tech ops, is one of several major executive changes (I, II) made by "interim" CEO Ross Levinsohn. (AllThingsD)
